NAMM 2012 Video: Taylor's First Tenor Ukulele

At last week's Winter NAMM show, Guitar World headed straight for the Builder's Reserve in the Taylor booth to check out Taylor's first-ever ukulele.

These tenor ukes are made out of the same Hawaiian koa wood used for Taylor's guitars -- but from smaller pieces the company has been saving for years. They are designed by Taylor's Andy Powers, who has been making ukuleles since he was a little kid!

For more info, check out the video below.

From 1998 to 2014, he was one third of Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin-based Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
